A Liquid Facelift is a technique for injecting advanced dermal fillers, such as JUVEDERM®, Radiesse® and Restylane® & Bellafill to lift and contour facial features. A non-surgical Liquid Facelift can be undertaken to accomplish any of the following:
- Gentle lift of individual (or overall) facial features
- Reduced wrinkles, creases, line or folds
- Restoration of natural, curved facial contours
- A more rested, energetic look
- A friendlier smile
As we age, the face begins to lose collagen and elastin which contributes to sagging facial features. The loss of facial volume and elasticity also leads the formation of wrinkles, lines, and folds.
Here at Defy Nature in New London, for some of our patients, the goal of a non-surgical Liquid Facelift procedure is to lift the entire face. In others, the goal is to lift or contour specific facial features. For example, dark circles can be masked by using the Liquid Facelift technique; eyes can be opened up and lids lifted; jowls can be lifted and diminished; natural shape can be restored to flattened cheeks or temple areas and corners of the mouth can be lifted. Many of these conditions and contouring procedures are can be seen on our website at defynaturellc.com as well as treatment procedures for a variety of wrinkles, folds, and lines.
A Liquid Facelift involves the use of advanced dermal fillers, sometimes in combination with BOTOX® or Dysport®. The dermal fillers used are among a group of 2nd generation injectables that provide more enduring results than earlier products. These advanced dermal fillers include JUVEDERM® Ultra, JUVEDERM® Ultra Plus, Radiesse®, Restylane®, Volure® and Bellafill®.
Each of these dermal fillers has unique attributes that work in their own special way to rejuvenate specific areas of the face. In general, dermal fillers replace lost volume in the face and help the body regenerate its own collagen. Most of the fillers, such as JUVEDERM®, Radiesse®, Restylane® & Perlane® are comprised of natural substances that our bodies already produce naturally.
BOTOX® & Dysport® may also be used in conjunction with the dermal fillers to provide added lift and to help the endurance of the dermal fillers.
